Halva Pancakes


I love halva and used to treat myself to a sweet chocolate halva confection when I lived in London. Now on a SIBO restricted diet and limiting sugar it’s something I haven’t enjoyed in many years. Although, not as sweet as the original it still has that wonderful flavour I remember.

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 buckwheat flour

1/4 almond flour

1/4 coconut milk or plant based milk of choice

1/2 mashed banana

A pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder

A dash of cinnamon

1 tsp maple syrup

2 squares 100% dark chocolate, broken into small pieces

*Optional: you could add 1 tsp of cacao to make these chocolate pancakes.

  1. Mash banana in a bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients except dark chocolate
  3. If the batter is too thick add a bit more coconut milk until it reaches the right consistency.
  4. Fold in chocolate.
  5. Heat pan over a medium temperature, lightly coat with coconut oil.
  6. Spoon batter onto pan to make pancakes.
  7. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until browning and cooked through.
